What? That’s been in Rule #2 for quite a while. Tag what’s in the image, defer to artist intent if something is undecidable from the image.

I know category:origin, category:character and category:oc.
 
What are the names of other categories on this site? I keep trying to find only yellow-colored tags but no name, like “episode”, “movie”, “episode or movie”, “episodes”, “movies”, “episodes or movies”, “episode-or-movie”, “episodes-or-movies” actually work.

There’s a persistent BP (or multiple BPs, I don’t know) who creates various “coiffure” tags, like these:
 
  • multicolored coiffure  
  • purple coiffure  
  • and these
     
    Should these be allowed, or removed/aliased? I don’t know how many (if any) “multicolored clothing” tags we have, but if we’re going to have tags for those, they have to be “clothes”, not “coiffures”. No one will search for the latter.

Well, none of those tags seem to involve actual coiffures (maybe barring Cad’s “not”-mum-hair) and the contents should be retagged into “X hair”. Aliasing would be misleading and potentially cause problems in the future.

cutie mark on clothes implies cutie mark. Cutie mark on clothes is used by many when the character’s pony counterpart’s cutie mark is on said character’s clothes, but the tag cutie mark has this description:  
Detailed description:
This tag should be used when a Cutie Mark is a major focus of an image. Either as the background or is significant to the picture.
Not to be used just because it happens to exist in the image.
Examples:

There’s nothing in cutie mark on clothes suggesting what it’s intended to be for. Something should be done about this.

I think the coiffure tags should be just removed, they don’t contribute anything. I’ve tried removing them, but the BP recreates them. And quotes song lyrics in the tags, leaving behind a total mess.

Their username is in the edit history. Perhaps someone should explain to them in a PM that what they need is either a gallery, a search for “ahegao AND tongue out” or at least a clear definition of that novel tag. BTW shouldn’t that picture be tagged ahegao?

I’d suggest trying to fit “dracon-” in it since otherwise it’s ambiguous if it’s just part dragon…
 
…is what I was about to say until I remembered dracony is the tag for dragon+pony. Now I don’t know what to think.
 
It’s also strange that there doesn’t seem to be a tag for draconequus+pony, since that’s quite a common hybrid.

  1. This should have been tagged sneakers on upload rather than converse, right? I used converse because I’d forgotten sneakers were a thing (not a native speaker) but that’s actually a specific type/brand of sneakers from the looks of it?
     
    So this picture and the next one, plus the completed vectors when they show up, should be tagged sneakers, right?
     
  2. Does this count as reasonably sized breasts ? Is it even a useful tag?
     
  3. Random, but I just found out that blowjob implies nudity while I was checking what tag implied that on my topless picture.
     
    Should that be the case? Just on the current latest page for blowjob,clothed sex, there’s (explicit links) three definitely fully-clothed blowjobs
     
    Please and thank you.

“butt slap”/“ass slap”/“plot slap” are aliased to “spanking”? Really? Those seem like quite different things to me: spanking having a connotation of pain and discipline or an authority role, butt slapping having a playful, flirtatious, or harassing context.
